After taking 91,540 photos, driving for 66,565 miles over 365 days across all 50 American states, Theron Humphrey has created what has become a monumental project that not only tells the story of everyday American people, but also takes a fresh look at social media. After working in a commercial photography studio since 2007, Theron woke up one morning with a wild idea to take to the road with little more than his camera and a simple idea – to meet new people everyday and let them tell their story in their own words.
This Wild Idea wasn’t just documented photographically, allowing Theron to sit down with each person he met to record at length their textured, unique and fascinating accounts of life, gaining deeper insights of the person in the process. As a whole, the project is testament to America’s vast and diverse nature, weaving together tales of everyday experience with a larger narrative that acts to highlight those people who unite all the states of America.
